How to Wear a Lariat Necklace

A lariat necklace is typically longer than most necklaces. It does not have a clasp and can be worn in many ways for different looks and can be adjusted to suit different pieces in your wardrobe or to fit different necklines. Here are a few suggestions on how to wear a lariat necklace:

1) Double Wrap - this is a great way to shorten the necklace and achieve a two strand look.

2) High Neck - wear the necklace closer to the neck for a dramatic look when wearing a low scoop neck. The long, graceful dangle can have a slimming affect and can add interest if you wear it with a simple dress.

3) Long V Neck - a more traditional necklace look, also very versatile, great with button down shirts, sleeveless tops, or turtlenecks.

Lariat necklaces are designed in many different ways, depending on how it is made, a lariat necklace can also be knotted, tied, or worn as a belt.
